Camilla Astrup is the daughter of Sigurd Haraldssøn Astrup, who is behind Eiendomsselskapet Norge.
The notification of the move to Verbier, in the canton of Valais in Switzerland, was registered in the population register as early as 4 October.
In 2021, Astrup was listed with a net worth of NOK 287 million.
She was featured in Finansavisen in September, when she sold a huge villa in Vettakollen in Oslo for NOK 70 million.

E24 has tried to get in touch with Astrup via her father, who has passed on the inquiry. She has not yet commented on the move notice.
Sold Norway’s most expensive
According to Finansavisen, the 820 square meter villa was thus Norway’s most expensive so far in 2022.
She bought the villa with her former husband, the financier and adventurer Arne Næss Jr., 22 years ago, the newspaper wrote. Næss died in a climbing accident in 2004.
Since then, she has also been with Rema billionaire Odd Reitan. The couple called it quits in 2012.
Now Astrup is announcing a move to Switzerland, as the latest in what is beginning to be a long line of wealthy Norwegians in the past year.

The most talked about emigrant is Kjell Inge Røkke, who announced his move to Lugano in Switzerland on 12 September.
Shortly afterwards it emerged that investor Tord Ueland Kolstad, billionaire Borger Borgenhaug and property investor Francis Stückrath Hay also moved out.
Recently, fishing heir Ole-Kristian Nergård and property billionaire Kim Erla have announced they are moving in the same direction.
E24’s research shows that 31 billion in net worth has moved to Switzerland in five years, and that two percent of the very richest Norwegians have left the country in 12 years. But the pace of moving has increased significantly in recent weeks and months.
